why not the 300MXC over EXC?

Recommended Posts

see a common complaint with the 300EXC only having a 5 speed...the MXC version has no lights..but the same engine and carb it appears..yet it has a 6 speed transmission...hmmm..any of you ktm experts shed some light on this? I imagine it would be basically plug and play to toss the lights on the MXC

It's a typo. The MXC has a close ratio 5-speed tranny so top speed is even lower than the EXC.

The MXC does have a lighting coil so you can add lights very easily.

I added lights to my MXC, it wasn't simple but I got them working. The lighting coils are different on the MXC, they're as bright as a Maglite but they work. The EXC has a bigger output for sure.

That typo has been around for ever... True, both bikes are 5 speeds.. The EXC's 1st is shorter than the MXC's which could be nice aswell as the 5th being taller (I wished I had a wider 5th). At my last enduro I surprised to see so many MXC's on the trail. After owning a few WRs I wanted to get a bike with a normal transmission. I'm real happy with it..
